My children call me a grammar Nazi, and any misused word jerks me right out of that willing suspension of disbelief. That might be what happened.

Hello Bamidele, How does writing for magazines and blogs work? Martha, with all due respect, get your head out of your butt.
Snobbery is dull, no matter how well-written it is. Dear All, I have read all the comments and I can find one or two typos or other grammatical error in each of the comments, including mine if you look properly. Well, this makes it perfect. This is absolutely how it should be. Either from the teacher, the pupil or the writer or the editor, you may find one or two errors, and it is just fine.
